Today was another day of errands. Nathan's car was making funny noises so I had to drop him off at the shop early this morning, then pick him back up at 5. Since I was passing by Kohls and needed to take some of Elon's birthday clothes back, I decided to stop there and look around a bit. I was able to exchange the too big shorts for another pair and for just $5 more was able to get two more Osh Kosh shirts that coordinate with shorts he has for next summer. A pretty good bargain, I thought.
I also wanted to look around for some birthday clothes for Nathan since his b-day is in a couple of weeks. I found some nice jeans and khaki pants for $7.99 a pair. Since Nathan's jeans are looking pretty raggedy (even for him), I decided to buy him a couple of pairs. This, too, seemed like a pretty good deal considering the fact that men's jeans can be quite expensive. These pants, along with the shirts and 2 dvds I purchased, will be Nathan's birthday gifts from Elon and I. Thankfully, birthday shopping is done for awhile.
I find that it is really hard to get chores accomplished when I have errands to run. By the time I load up the kids, drive there, do what I need to do, then drive back, I'm usually pooped. Then there's lunches and clean up and diapers and naps. During nap time, I try to do something relaxing or nap myself. A lot of times, I use this time to blog. I really don't like to use the time for cleaning. I used to do that and it seemed to lead to burn out. So I'm curious, what do you do while your kids nap? It'd be nice to know how old they are and how long they usually nap, just for comparison sake.
